The students at West Elementary School did an outstanding job Tuesday afternoon, May 15 raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society while also celebrating "The Greatest Show on Earth."

On the serious side, the group of students was proud to present a $2290.90 check to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Campaign Manager Robbie Conrad. The highest fundraising class was Mrs. Puckett's class as they won the Gold Award, raising more than $300.

For the students at West, it was a continuing success story as they have raised a grand total of $34,000 over the past several years.

The Society also received a second check through the generosity of the Buffalo Dip Company. Owner Duane Boring was on hand to explain the company has been donating toward the fundraising drive, a portion of proceeds from the jars the students sold. The donation amounted to $186 and the top three student sellers were: Isabelle Riddlemoser, Kylie Scarberry and Kenize Wilson. Buffalo Dip has taken off as it is sold in Rural King Stores in several states and at several grocery outlets in the local area as well.

With the serious part of the assembly over, it was show time as costumed, circus-like characters, music, animals and clowns roamed around the gym. The students had a chance to interact with the characters and the atmosphere was lively and loud. Then the students had a chance to throw a whipped-cream pie at the face of "Janitor Dale" and they had a great time doing it.

West Elementary Principal Mary Ann Hale stated this day has become a red-letter day at West and adds the students have really become dedicated to it. She also thanked all the students and staff members for all they do as many people from around the area benefit from the money which is raised.
